    Well Ive taken classes on it and interviewed a couple imams, why do muslims hold more reverence for christianity in their mainstream views than mainstream christians hold for them? (thats a big part of it)

    Insert heart-felt but content-absent declaration of loyalty to abstract concept here.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Perhaps you should read the article because it clearly doesn't say what you're implying.

    The first spate of violence of 2010 started on 17 January and lasted at least four days. Houses, churches, mosques and vehicles were set ablaze during the fighting.[5] At least 200 people were killed.[6] skirmishes began after Muslim youths set a Catholic church, filled with worshippers, on fire


    Hundreds of people died in fresh clashes in March 2010. According to the New York Times, the slaughtered villagers were Yoruba, mostly Christians, slain by machete attacks from the Hausa-Fulani, a group of Muslim herdsmen Before dawn on 7 March 2010, more than one hundred Christian villagers were killed by Muslim Hausa-Fulani herders in Dogo-Nahawa village near Jos.[18][19] The attacks went on for four hours,[20] and nearby villages were also targeted.[21] Guns were fired by the perpetrators to cause panic and led to villagers running towards them to be chopped up by machetes.[18] The villagers were mainly Berom Christians.[22] Buildings were also set alight.[22] Most of the dead were women and children.[18] One of the dead was an infant less than three months of age.[20] Corpses were dumped in the streets

    I don't get why these people feel the need to announce every time they want to burn a Quran. I mean go for it, but shut the hell up. It is getting tiring to hear about.

    Cherry-picking and moving the goalposts in addition to failure to read and/or comprehend the material presented. Good show, old boy!

    Of course their is emotion involved, with the anniversary of such a tragic event, and many Americans still wondering why.

    It's always good to make decisions based on emotion. That never ends up badly.

    The West has come down with a bad attack of Islam and a huge dose of education will stiffen the moral fibre (fiber).

    "In January, 1997 the LRA attacked Lamwo, in northern Uganda. More than 400 people are killed, and approximately 100,000 people are displaced."

    "In May, 2002 the LRA attacked Eastern Equatoria in Sudan. An estimated 450 people were killed, and witnesses state some villagers were forced to walk off a cliff."

    "On December 25, 2008, the LRA massacred 189 people and abducted 120 children during a concert celebration sponsored by the Catholic church in Faradje, Democratic Republic of Congo, continuing the attack on December 26."

    "In December, 2009, the LRA massacred "at least" 321 people in the Democratic Republic of Congo, according to a BBC investigation published in March, 2010 (see Makombo massacre). The deaths were verified by the Red Cross and Human Rights Watch. Victims were hacked or battered to death, and survivors were made to carry loads for their attackers. At least eighty children of both sexes were captured, the boys as fighters, the girls to be sex slaves for the LRA members."


    Oh yeah:

    "Lord’s Resistance Army is just the name of the movement, because we are fighting in the name of God. God is the one helping us in the bush. That’s why we created this name, Lord’s Resistance Army. And people always ask us, are we fighting for the [biblical] Ten Commandments of God. That is true – because the Ten Commandments of God is the constitution that God has given to the people of the world. All people. If you go to the constitution, nobody will accept people who steal, nobody could accept to go and take somebody’s wife, nobody could accept to innocently kill, or whatever. The Ten Commandments carries all this."
